  • No, smoking is bad.
  • No. It's bad for your health and it's very difficult to stop.
  • Who cares how old you are? You are a PERSON, no matter how old you are. Why bother getting yourself into things like that? I'm sixteen myself and I know there are many pressures. A lot of my friends started smoking this year and it has really been a dent in our relationships. I am a Christian so I don't want to smoke. The Bible says to present ourselves as a holy sacrifice because the holy spirit lives within. Our bodies are the temple that holds it. I wouldn't smoke because of that. But if I were in your boat, I wouldn't do it just for my mom. Once you start, you keep going. MY mom just has been through so much I can't believe she's still alive. She is so fragile, emotionally. I would NEVER do that to her. Do you have any respect for yourself? Take care of your body. Take care of your life. Do only what benefits you, what builds you up, not tears you down.
  • Smoking is bad for you, but if that's what you prefer, then that's your freedom of choice.
  • Why would you want to start a habit that is not only very unhealthy for you, but really hard to kick once you start? Don't fall to peer pressure; be smart and don't start.
  • you probably shouldn't start at all. my mom says it's like suicide. smoking even though you know it's bad for your body.
  • Here is the advice form my parent's well if its Tobacco then it is OK, if it is weed NO WAY!! Smoking is safer than drinking alcohol. I rather have you smoking than drinking. so I say it is OK to, but my opinion does NOT count. it is your choice and your parents.
  • Would you viciously mutilate your genitals with an ice pick...the answer is pretty obvious!! NOOOOOO!!!!
  • Yep. You'll look so much cooler. Your friends will think you're totally rad. However, you also might die of lung cancer. But come on, dying a painful death is such a small price to pay for looking fab!! And fab you shall be, with your yellow teeth and fingers, and you're wheezy breathing.
  • you're old enough...so normally you may...but my personal thoughts,please don't..it's not healthy you know...i know it's kinda cool..but me myself is trying to resist the temptation too right now.. but...you're mature enough to think about it yourself,i guess..so i won't really tell you what you should do
  • you should never start anything you cannot finish
  • hell no!
  • No. It's not good to even think about starting. You can ruin your health by smoking. Also it's offensive to some people. Last but not least, it's expensive! * I'm glad I did not start smoking as I could not afford to buy cigarettes at around $5.00 a pack. I can spend that money much better for something else that will not turn my lungs black.
  • No better time than the present my friend.
  • the legal age to smoke is 18 they are costly how are you buying them smoking makes you stink like an ash tray smoking causes cancer and lung problems your pets and others around you can get sick from second hand smoke it makes your room/house stink and you can loose your sense of taste and smell there are so many reasons to NOT start and these are just a few so read up on it and also go to google and type in smokers lungs take a look at the pics and then you can make your decision to start or NOT!
  • uhh... the answer would be NO. just ask yourself WHY? (no offense to those who smoke) but, do you really want to smell like an ashtray, do you really want to spend your money on something youre going to burn away (money you could save to buy something useful), and do you really want a nasty habit that will come back to give you emphyzema or cancer? those are just thoughts to ponder.
  • Why not? you will look at least 15% cooler And if it gives you cancer when you're 80.. who cares! who the hell wants to be 90 anyway? That part was a joke You probably shouldn't start. But then again it depends what you're thinking of smoking... If it's crack i'd wait until you're at least 17 and a half.
  • No. I'm 38, I started smoking when I was 14, and you won't believe how difficult it is to stop. You better just not start. I know it tastes good, feels right and kinda looks cool, but it just damages your health too much. And never underestimate addiction! If you think you are the one who will not have problems stopping with an addiction, then you are already fooling yourself.
  • do what ever you want. its your life your body. but if youre doing it just because you want to look cool i dont recommend it. that whole thing that smoking is cool died when little "emo" kids started smoking at 14.
  • I'm a smoker, so is my wife and my two daughters. Both of my daughters started smoking at around the age of 16...and my wife and I were not bothered by that - they were "adults" by then and could make up their own minds. But my advice to you is this - don't smoke. Forget the health risks - you may do serious damage to your health yes - but the odds say you wont...that's the truth about that - and forget the propaganda, anyone who spends their entire life protesting against something legal that somebody else does sounds like a nutcase in my book - and you should stay away from nutcases. You shouldn't smoke because society has decided to persecute smokers "for their own good" . It doesn't matter what YOU WANT, or how you wish to live YOUR LIFE, you don't have any choice in the matter - you will be chastised, taxed, browbeaten, penalized, insulted, and totally disregarded by the same society you support and help build. Yes, smoking is an enjoyable pastime, it's a traditional pleasure that's been enjoyed by billions for centuries ...but it's not something you should take part in...society has declared war on smokers and the outcome is inevitable that smokers will loose. So don't be on the loosing side - there's no point to it.. just let it remain just a dubious pleasure that you never acquired a taste for - and live your life in peace. All the best!
  • Nope. Especially if you aren't confidant enough to answer the question for yourself.
  • Yeah. Let me know how cancer feels at 45.
  • No. A friend of my friend died last week. She was 45 and was a smoker for 25+ years. She died of brain cancer. She was in a lot of pain. There is no way to tell if her smoking habit and the cancer were linked, but why risk it?
  • No. It's expensive, unhealthy, and illegal.
  • why would u bother? just think of the cost!!! and the smell!! ugh!!!!
  • Sure since smoking improves your health and benefeits you in so many ways I was thinking of sniffing coke but its too expensive
  • no, it really is a big waste of money, no matter how old you are.
  • ya shouldnt smoke no matter how old ya are

Smoking is highly addictive, don’t start 5. Stopping smoking reduces the risk of fatal heart and lung diseases 6. Smoking can cause a slow and painful death 7. Smoking causes aging of the skin 8.

  • Of course not. You know that.
  • At the very least you will smell like an ashtray. As a non smoker there is no bigger turn off than a smoker in the opposite sex.
  • It doesn't matter how old you are. It's not sensible when you're 16, and it isn't any more sensible when you're 60.
  • You ARE kidding, right?
  • Dude, you'll look so cool! You'll have hair and clothes that smell like smoke, burnt fingers, yellow nails, yellow teeth, bad breath, and best of all, cancer! It's so worth it! ;D You're one crazy son of a bitch...
  • I just had a coworker die from lung cancer last month. She was only 37. Not sure how long she had smoked, but at least since she was a teenager. She best friend who I also work with smokes. Apparently losing her friend to lung cancer wasn't enough. 37 is VERY young to die. Don't even start. Even if cigarettes were free, the health problems are not worth what they do to do.
  • Please the people do not ever smoke, it is by far the worse and the dumbest thing to do. I know I did it and then quit, but totally messed me up.
  • NO. Talk to some people that do smoke and they will probably tell you the same thing.
  • NO. Thats a very bad habit, and again NO.
  • Sure. Go jump off a high cliff too. Anything else you need advice on? How about respecting yourself?
  • If you want to, I'm not going to stop you. Freedom of choice is something I strongly believe in. It's your health. Not my business if you want to smoke. If want to smoke bad enough. God to the gas station and buy a pack. If you like it smoke. Don't worry about what others think.
  • I don't think you should smoke at any age.
  • You need to wait until it's legal -- age 18.
  • i wouldnt, i started at 12, and i just recently quit. its such a hard habbit to brake.
  • If a life of state-sponsored slavery by way of chemical addiction leading to a cancer-laden demise is your life's goal, then yeah. Smoke away.
